tv Anderson Cooper 360 CNN March 13, 2012 1:00am-2:00am EDT
dream job. "ac 360" starts right now. we begin tonight .keying them honest. with diplomats talking while a dictator keeps killing as the u.s. and britain pushes the u.n. security council to get tough on syria. russia warn against assigning blame or acting out of revenge against the assad regime. the only signs of revenge we see today in syria come down from youtube videos of innocent victims in ordinary neighborhoods targeted by assad's forces. this is from homs where government troops have free reign. body after body, truck after truck. according to the opposition, these were women and children stabbed, burned to death late sunday. some had their throats slit. you see 22 body bags in all of the 45 who were reported dead. as always, we can't independently verify the claims of the video, but today at least we got a kind of confirmation from syrian state media. it, too, broadcast the victim ofs in homs.
normally they limit themselves to footage of funerals of police officers and security forces. now at least it is showing civilian victims, but on syrian state television, they blame those killings on so-called armed terrorist groups. it's a narrative we've heard over and over again from the regime. the military has taken control of the neighborhoods in homs. the pictures you saw may, in fact, support that assessment. in his meeting, kofi anan, the syrian dictator stuck to the story that the violence is being committed by armed terrorist gang, insisting his regime is not slaughtering civilians. despite that, and despite grim accounts from the u.n.'s own people, annan found some reason for hope for optimism. >> they want peace, they want to move on with their lives.
>> but keeping them hoens, annan's assessment treats the violence as if it came out of nowhere, that it just somehow happened to the syrian people. it is not just happening. the regime is making it happen. the violence being inflicted on the syrian people. and not any of it stopped, not one moment stopped while annan and assad were talking. dozens more were killed over the weekend all asyria. the regime is reportedly doing what it did in baba amr. and even though the free syrian army is fighting back as you can see in this new video in an attack on a tank, they they're no match for the syrian army.
is it even a war? would it be accurate to call it that? >> no, this isn't a war. this is a siege and slaughter. >> you say it's a slaughter? now syrian forces are free to go house to house, apartment to apartment and seek whatever revenge they want. and there's really no one there anymore to document it. no international correspondents or locals with access to youtube cameras and up loading things on youtube. >> caller: absolutely. unfortunately now, that was a line of defense, the fact that this could be documented and maybe, maybe hopefully the presence of photographers and
journalists hold them -- this will continue in the dark, undocumented. >> we'll hear more from paul, a photo journalist who escaped from homs. we'll also talk with a professor. but first, valerie amos, just back from syria and refugee camps across turkey. the syrian government insists and has insisted for a year with armed terrorist gangs that are responsible. from what you saw, does it make sense to you that armed terrorist gangs are capable of the destruction? >> they have been heavy fighting going on. any kind of opposition or armed gang would have had to have the considerable weapons at their disposal.
>> you met with the foreign minister, members of the assad regime. how do they, in private, do they actually use the same rhetoric of armed terrorist gangs? to do they really seem to believe that? >> all of the ministers that i met made it clear that the syrian government was fighting terrorism. they were fighting people who wanted to see regime change in the country and also made the point that they did not think there was significant humanitarian needs in the country. >> how can they say that there's not, you know, significant humanitarian needs in the country? we have seen with our own eyes the shelling of it. we have seen what independent reporters call the slaughter of people there. >> i'm really worried about what is happening to the people of baba amr. there was no one around.
it was pretty much deserted. thousands of people have been displaced. we don't know how many people have been wounded or where they have gone or indeed what their needs are. so, my view is that there are humanitarian needs in syria and i would like us to be able to find out more about exactly what those needs are and how we can help. >> as you know, the syrians, there are a lot of syrians who watch this program who will say the assad regime is basically buying time. they are using you, they are using kofi annan, they're using you, they're holding meetings and make pronouncements. they are buying time to slaughter people on the ground. what do you need to see? what is your timetable for action by the syrian regime to prove they are serious about meeting the humanitarian needs of the people? >> well, what i heard from the syrian government in terms of their proposal to me is that they should start within a week
of my visit. that means thursday of this week. that is what we are planning for. >> i know you are in a difficult position. you have to deal with these people and meet with these people. from an outsider's perspective, if they don't allow the red crescent into bama amr in the days after they've been shelling it for weeks and weaks and weeks and we know there are desperately injured people there who are afraid to go to government-run hospitals. there's little medicine and little food getting in. if the syrian regime refuses to allow the red crescent in immediately to bring in humanitarian supplies, why should they believe a week from now or two weeks from now they're going to help you do an assessment of the needs of the people? won't a lot of the people already be dead? >> my job is to keep trying. my job is to try as hard as we can to get the help to the people who need it. my job is not to give up.
>> valerie amos, i appreciate your time. thank you. >> thank you very much. i want to bring in paul conroy who was wounded in syria in the same attack that took the lives of his colleagues. valley is obviously in a difficult position. seems like a nice person, but it's kind of ridiculous to be going through this facade where she's saying well, there's this timetable we want them to bring in humanitarian relief. they have been shelling the city for a month now killing countless people, and they won't let them bring in the red crescent tote to bring in relief when it's most needed. >> what's interesting, i was listening carefully and you said all this is buying time. it is very interesting and very compelling. there's a 22-year-old protester in syria quoted in "the new york times" saying the world is buying time by sending more
delegations. kofi annan will do nothing. valerie amoes will do nothing. they are weak people. they understand the brief they are given by the united nations. i understand the abdication of american power hiding behind the russian veto, to be honest with you. we keep going to the u.n. and we sent kofi. there's reputation, solid in rwanda with the reputation questioned. in bosnia with the reputation questioned. he walks in like this innocent man, thinking that there's peace and love to be dispensed around in syria. >> paul, last time we spoke, you just made it out of syria and you very plainly called what happened in homs a slaughter house, what was going on there. the idea that the syrian regime is claiming the armed gangs slit
the throats of women and children in homs, now that they control those neighborhoods once again, when you hear that, what do you think? i'm being told we're not hearing you on the air. i'm hearing paul in my ear. apologize for that. we'll try to get that technical problem fixed. for the u.n. to kind of still be paying lip service to the syrian regime's claims of armed terrorist gangs just seems absurd to me. >> look, the u.n. is really irrelevant. when we talk about the u.n. we are focusing on the wrong player. it's the power, the democracy. what will the u.s. do? what will britain do? what will france do? what will the moderate arab governments with their money and alleged support for the syrian people, what will they do? we go to the united nations. it's a cul-de-sac. when you go to the u.n. you're going to already face the obstacles at the u.n., the russians, the chinese, the other powers.
i think the syrian people are right to conclude they live alone, they dwell alone and die alone in this fight. >> also for the syrian regime to claim that well, it's armed terrorist gangs who are slitting the throats of children and women, it does not make sense. they claim they are trying to kill all these people in order to make it look like the regime is killing these people. activists are saying it's the militias that are pro-syrian government militias, the shaheeb who are doing this. >> i think one of your colleagues, arwa damon did some amazing reporting from syria. she put the light to all the claims of the regime. the regime is committing barbarous deeds. we're talking about skinning people. we're talking about killing people. slitting the throats of children. we go back to where we started 14 months ago with the arab theme. the theme of this broadcast as i understood it then and it remains the essential theme is
fear has been defeated. what bashar al assad wants to do in these places is to recreate the culture of fear, to frighten the syrian people into submission. you know what? if the rest of the world doesn't come to the rescue, they may succeed. >> paul, are you there? can you hear me? sorry about that, paul. when you hear the syrian regime claiming the gangs and hear of the slaughter that happened over the weekend with women and children in homs, you said it's like you are in "alice in wonderland." absolutely. absolutely no connection to what is happening on the ground in syria at the moment. it continues to take place. then we hear rumors that there's room for optimism. one thing i also had was kofi annan saying we should not arm
bullets and ammunition to the syrian army because it may increase the level of bloodshed. it's impossible to raise it anymore. how bad does it have to be to stop this? i mean, if they don't get these people what they need to defend themselves, then it's a moderately corrupt world what's happening now. they are hiding behind the fact that russia will veto. the u.n. is happy that russia is vetoing. it's an excuse for action. it's reprehensible corruption. the women, men and children are suffering. they couldn't stop for moments while crews sat there. they went on as if nothing is happening.
they will continue to carry on and blame armed terrorists. this is a very corrupt and dangerous game that's being played. >> the statement from the u.n. in charge of humanitarian ref leaf assessing the needs, she says well, we need a schedule and we need to see if the syrians are serious about meeting the needs of the people. it's a tough sentence to listen to given they have been shelling their people for months. they would not allow the red crescent in with immediate humanitarian assistance, food and medical assistance, after getting a victory in homs. >> absolutely. i find it difficult to wait a minute. to think we're going to sit and wait on the regime. we witness.
we know it's happening. to sit there and say we'll give it a week. we'll see what can be done. i mean, are we living in -- we are not that naive. i can't describe it. before i managed to keep me cool. now i'm furious that we're playing this corrupt game of waiting for aid to go in. it's nonsense. the problem is we are eight months too late on this. we are trying to play catch-up and the u.s. is not going to move in the military. what it needs is control by the military to get the people safe. all of this nonsense about armed terrorist gangs. we know the problem. we all sat and listened to this regime. its lies, its attempts to cover
up what's happened. i must say, the harder i feel when i see kofi annan and crew going in and paying lip service to the regime that has annihilated a large part of its own citizens, it's almost too much to bear. almost. thankfully, there are people aware of this and good god. are we going to play that game? it's a horrible game. to see being played at these people. >> it is. >> i'm sorry i'm so angry. >> no, i understand the anger. >> i wish i was a bit more subtle. but no, i'm angry. i hope somebody wakes up and says get them people out of there and stop this nonsense. >> i appreciate you being on. i know it's -- you saw it with your own eyes, so i understand the anger. paul, appreciate it. fwad as well. i should point out, a funeral
was held today at new york's long island, family and friends paying respects to marie colvin. her mother feared her body would never come back from syria. it nearly never happened. it took days. tonight, she is home. we say it with heavy hearts for the work she did. she was 56 years old and truly a remarkable lady. let us know what you think. you can follow me on twitter@anderson cooper. i'm tweeting tonight. ahead on the program, what we're learning about the american soldier accused of maskering 16 men, women and children in afghanistan, killing the very people american forces are there to protect. up next, a tight race that could give newt gingrich's campaign a new political life or start mitt romney on a roll that could be tough to stop. details ahead.

[ male announcer ] if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. raw politics now. the night before two crucial primaries, mississippi and alabama, a tight race between newt gingrich and romney who is
putting himself up for adoption. 34% of mississippi voters choose romney with 32% for gingrich. same for alabama with gingrich slightly ahead. santorum is third in each. this is something of a romney surge in two states gingrich seemed to get victory in yesterday. >> i think we'll win both and pulling ahead in both states right now. we have great organizations in both states. >> he appeared to back pedal saying there's a fair chance we'll win. which is something most politicians do, given the role that expect tastes can play. days before the arizona primary, his campaign described it as an early benchmark where, quote, victory is vital. when chances of a victory disappeared, that quote slipped away from his website. here is gingrich weeks before
the iowa caucuses before the first votes were held anywhere. >> i'm going to be the nominee. it's hard not to look at the polls and see i'm going to be the nominee. >> he went from predicting a win in iowa to second place would be fine, then third then fourth. gingrich finished fourth. every candidate since the beginning of time tried to play down the expectations game to perfection. mitt romney is, too. but another big part of his southern strategy going into tomorrow's races is to sown more southern. listen. >> morning y'all. i got started right this morning with a biscuit and cheesy grits. a nice old john deere tractor from awhile ago. i'm learning to say y'all. i like grits. strange things are happening to me. wouldn't you love to hear them sing "sweet home alabama." wouldn't that be wonderful. >> i've been getting hugs from southern girls. i came from 12 to -- well a lot
more than 12. >> romney calls the south his away game. santorum says there's no such thing as an away game. john king is joining us. he's going to be working the magic ball tomorrow night. alice, your campaign said they are in a better position. romney has more than twice the delegates you do. it seems like he's struggling on that front, doesn't it? >> well, you have to wonder why someone like mitt romney, after super tuesday comes out with the message about math. it's not very inspiring. they have put out memos and talked about the fact it would be mathematically impossible for santorum to come out ahead. i's nothing more than a smoke screen to demonstrate he is not inspiring the base. he is not in touch with conservatives. we are letting folks know the
math is still a long way out. rick is the true conservative in this race. he is inspiring the base. >> but you're saying your candidate is a better position on delegates than mitt romney is. how is that possible? >> it certainly is. the delegates out there are unbound. they are going to swing more toward a conservative candidate like rick santorum. >> you are saying it's better for your candidate to be so far behind in delegates than the front-runner is? logically, does that make sense? >> romney campaign is using it as a smoke screen to say he is not inspiring the base. the delegates left to be decided are in state that is are better suited for rick santorum. a lot of the unbound delegates are going to go to a conservative candidate, not a moderate. >> the speaker is calling any state a must win. wasn't his whole southern
strategy, wasn't it dependent on winning someplace in the south? if he can't win there, where can he win? >> he won georgia big and south carolina, which stopped the romney machine. the day before newt gingrich won in south carolina, rick santorum was declared the winner. all of a sudden, all the pundits were saying he won iowa and new hampshire. sorry, here we are. >> south carolina is history. tomorrow -- >> you asked about the south. we are doing well in mississippi and alabama. newt, the day after newt decided to stay there. he's been there the entire time. >> you are not predicting a victory there? >> we are competitive in both states. we are very competitive in both states. today, senator santorum is damping down expectations. let me say this. there's no must win state, there's a must win election. republican primaries believe to
beat obama in the fall you have to beat him in the debate. three are scheduled. there's one guy that is fearless. it was never part of the romney campaign plan to have a gingrich spokesperson a week after super tuesday. they rigged the system. they weren't supposed to be here. >> john, i'm going to bring you in. how important are tomorrow's votes for the gingrich campaign? are they a must win for him? >> he is on the record saying they are must win states. they have to win from spartanburg to texas. mississippi, louisiana, texas and arkansas. look, this is what happens when you receive polling. the fact you have a too close to call in alabama and mississippi, anderson, reminds us this is a whacky, incredible volatile race.
when campaigns are putting out memos, they are driving a blog culture. we keep score by the minute, let alone the hour and day. they are saying santorum and gingrich are still in it. the romney people are doing it, too. i'm not picking on you. we had a horrible situation in afghanistan. what about gas and spending. because it's so close and volatile is about petty things at the moment. i think it's a shame. >> what about santorum? how well do you think he needs to do? >> if he could get a win, it would be great. if you look at the polling numbers, he's down in the 20s. this will be tough for him. he's won in the midwest. if he does not get a win, it's harder. gingrich wins in both, santorum says newt is back, i'm strong, romney is in it. if romney gets a win and runs competitive, the two campaign people you have with you are going to have a tougher day.
if romney wins, one of the biggest arguments is the massachusetts moderate can't win in the deep south. if he comes out with a win, it's hard for the santorum and gingrich campaign to spin that way way. >> we have to leave it there. see you tomorrow night. stay with cnn for complete coverage of the primaries and caucuses. erin burnett starts at 7:00 p.m. eastern, 8:00, i'll join wolf blitzer as the votes for alabama and mississippi start to come in. we'll continue the coverage at 10:00 p.m. eastern. a full wrap up. details about the u.s. soldier who gunned down 16 afghan civilians including nine children in the middle of the night. also bobbi kristina brown's first interview about losing her mother whitney houston. any clues about what happened? we'll speak to dr. drew pinskey on that. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 let's talk about fees.

tonight, the taliban in afghanistan are vowing revenge for the massacre of 16 civilians, women, children and men pulled from their beds and shot dead. the killings have enraged afghans. karzai called it an unforgivable crime. president obama was on the phone talking to president karzai. here is what president obama said today. >> i talked to president karzai and expressed my deep condolences.
this is a situation where we are doing an investigation, but you have a lone gunman who acted on his own. just a tragic, tragic way. >> the pentagon is calling the attack an isolated incident, the work of one troubled soldier. they have not released his name. he's stationed in washington state. tonight, there are new details about him. here is tom forman. >> reporter: 3:00 sunday morning, deep in taliban territory, afghan troops spot an american soldier leaving the outpost all alone. they alert u.s. commanders to say it is an army sergeant in his mid-30s with a wife and children. they will learn he is working security, he is a qualified sniper. he suffered a brain injury in a vehicle accident in 2010 but was found fit for duty. he's been to iraq three times.
as they organize a search, they have no idea where he is headed. a short while later, less than a mile away, witnesses say the night erupts. one guy came in, pulled a boy from his sleep and shot him in this doorway, this woman says. then he came back inside the room and put a gun in the mouth of one child and stomped on another. according to residents, the uniformed gunman moved from house to house in two small vim lajs, shooting into some, entering others. several people were wounded and survived. 16 people did not. four men, three women and nine children. at least one of them, just a toddler, were killed. most of the dead were related to each other. look at this, the bodies, this man says, they all belong to one family. witnesses say the gunman also set fire to some of the bodies before he finally retreated into the night. military officials say the first they knew of all of this was when some wounded afghans showed
up at their base, telling tales of a vicious attack. officials say the search party found the missing sergeant heading back to his post where he immediately turned himself in. what they are looking for now is any explanation of what happened in the horrifying hours while he was gone. >> what are we learning about other similar incidents from the base in washington state where the soldier was from? this base is known as the most troubled base. >> certainly there's nothing quite similar to this, anderson. as you know, this is one of the most horrific things we have seen there. this joint base, lewis mccord is a huge, sprawling base. it was an army base and air force base joined together. it's been sitting at an intersection here between concern in the military about various disorders, ptsd, important it's being treated properly, whether or not people are being pushed back into battle. some of the families have been
pushing there to say we need better investigation. there has been an investigation. there have been other problems there. big suicide rate rate a couple of years back. a problem from another troop in that base convicted last november of murdering afghan civilians. so the problem for the base, having been there, anderson, knowing there are many, many great leaders there and great soldiers there. men and women and their families who want to serve, who want to have a record of going the extra mile. and yet, this concern that maybe some people are being pushed too far. we don't know if that's the case in this case, but that's where the concern is, anderson. >> if the allegations are true, it makes it that much harder for the soldiers and marines to get their jobs done. tom, appreciate it. thanks. we are following other stories tonight. >> a short time ago, an egyptian official told cnn a truce has been reached between israel and the palestinians to end days of violence and bloodshed. at least seven people were killed today in the gaza strip and more than three dozen
rockets fired from israel to gaza. at least 23 people in gaza have been killed. the people that released kony 2012 released a video he hopes will answer questions from critics. it's been viewed more than 17 million times on youtube. some question invisible children's transparency. check this out. a shark feeding frenzy off the coast of perth, australia. more than 50 sharks feasting on a massive school of tuna. experts say an event like this is rare. birds were flying arounds to snap up the leftovers. >> incredible. >> i knew, shark boy, you would be like that. >> shark boy. thanks. still ahead, bobbi kristina

hear it right now, i can't. you know, to hear it, i can hear her voice in spirit talking to me and telling me, you know, keep moving. you know, i'm right here, i got you. >> she was houston's only child. they were very close. hours after houston died, bobbi kristina was hospitalized. dr. drew, bobbi kristina lost a mom, and a famous mom. it's interesting she would want to do an interview so soon after her mom died. >> that's true. that's something i wondered myself. there's a couple hints there that it is too soon. one is, if you notice, she didn't actually sit-down with oprah. probably because that level of intimacy would trigger such intense emotion that reasonably she did not want to go through that. that's one thing.
the other is she seems contained about this. it's less than a month. she can't be feeling okay about it. it's just not possible. this poor kid is keeping it held together. >> people, you know, in grief react in different ways. i want to play more sound from last night. >> i'm sure that, like, with everybody who loses a loved one, it comes in waves, you can be perfectly fine one day, then the slightest thing puts you back there. >> it does. it comes in waves. one minute, i could be laughing and happy. and this and that. but then it will come over me like, you know, it's my mom. i have to, you know, start crying, deal with it. here again, i hear it again, come on, keep moving. >> i mean, i guess perhaps one of the reasons she wanted to do this was to try to kind of change the narrative about whitney houston's death or --
i'm always mystified by some people, in the midst of grief, talk. i don't know, i didn't get many answers in this. >> no, no, i'm with you, i didn't either. the one interesting thing she talked about that you saw a hint of in the tape was she was talking about feeling her molter's spirit and her voice. she wasn't explicit about this, but sometimes it can be normal to have hallucinations about this person. she buffered it saying it's just her spirit i feel. she talked about it with a certain kind of vividness that leads me to believe that she feels like she's actually talking to her. that's not abnormal at this stage of the game. >> there's another thing about feeling her in dreams. let's play that. >> have you had the visitation? i know some people think we are crazy. >> yeah. oh, yeah.
>> but a lot of people have where they come to you in your dreams. >> yeah. >> really? >> oh, yeah. throughout the house. throughout the house, lights turn on and off. i'm like mom, what are you doing. >> really? >> yeah. you know, we still like, i can sit there and laugh with her, you know, i can sit there and talk to her. >> that, i mean, that feeling somebody in dreams, that goes on for a long time after a loss. >> for sure. again, i think she's actually talking about interacting with her as she goes through the house. she talks to her. she buffers it saying it's signs of her being present. she has these experiences where she feels she's talking to her. again, i want to caution people, it's normal. that's what your brain does when it can't handle these overwhelming losses. it buffers it and gets used to the idea of this person being gone. >> it's interesting. i have learned a lot from
listening to you on this subject. i was talking to friends with addiction issues and consider themselves addicts as most with addiction issues do. they said even when getting drugs from their doctor, prescribed drug drugs, they don't want to take anything that has any mood altering effect lest it kind of trigger something back. >> right. that's exactly right. it reawakens the biology of addiction. there are certain drugs that trigger that biology. and these are the drugs that people are dying of these days having been prescribed by doctors. and again, let's remind ourselves that just because they're prescribed, if they're prescribed to an addict doesn't make it any safer. sorry about your ambien. is i know that troubles you when you bring it up. >> to be honest, i have not had ambien since we had that discussion because it concerned me.
>> well, it should. these are -- the other thing i want to get out of people's mind is there are good drugs and bad drugs. ambien and morphine and codeine are excellent drugs if you need to take them. if you have addiction, a history of addiction or addiction triggered these are the chemicals that can kill you. >> dr. drew, thanks. >> still ahead, she's accused of running a high-end escort service. the mother of four says she doesn't have two nickels to rub together. what he offered for bail. details ahead. of life with the prius c! ♪ oh, my maltipoo's depressed. but my affordable prius c means i can pay for his acupuncture. whew. i love my pooch. oh no! my homemade sushi... turned p-ushi! use estimated 53 mpg to find a gluten-free alternative. look, this means i'm a chef.
